ABSTRACT. New faunistic records are provided for 38 millipede species, representing nine families and six orders from the Caucasus, including the Krasnodar and Stavropol provinces, Adygea, Karachaevo-Cherkessia, Abkhazia, Georgia, Armenia, and Ciscaucasia (Rostov-on-Don Region). A new iconography is presented for 14 species. Records of several recently described species are of particular interest, because they considerably extend our knowledge of their actual distribution areas.
KEY WORDS: taxonomy, iconography, Russia, Abkhazia, Armenia, fauna, distribution.
